a rampage in a china school in which a madman went after children in a school with a knife and he stabbed over 20 of them, but none of them died. and that's the key difference. when you have an automatic weapon that you can rapidly reload, when you have a gun, it kills. it kills more easily. it's hard to stab people to death. >> certainly you're not suggesting that a communist society rules are what we should follow. i mean, a mentally disturbed man stole guns. i haven't been shown any piece of legislation that is going to change that. if there was a gun law that would change the fact that a mentally disturbed man couldn't steal a gun, i would be for it, but the simple fact is, judy, i don't care what law you're going to put in place, the mentally disturbed man is going to steal a gun. >> you can't abolish-- >> he didn't have to steal it, he took it from his mother, what happened in columbine, took them from their parents and the n.r.a., i consider to be a completely utterly destructive organization in this society if they want everybody to have a gun they need to start talking to people

about china electric demand being strong. remember, they make coal machinery, depending upon how much electric demand there is in china, his orders go up. that's why i think people are surprised the stock eel not down big, given his concerns throughout the near term. >> comments, the buybacks continue. >> now, i begin to say, wait a second. one buyback, maybe -- too much coincidence here. you have the news out of joint global. i think people are starting to say this fourth quarter's an inflection point for china. less worried about inflation, more worried about pro-growth. cummins is a uniquely chinese story. so many truck engines go there. let's keep track of this. >> a lot of people say if you've got gdp growing again and inflation as low as it is, that is the sweet spot, that is where you always want to be. >> india came out with global stuff. coal, i know, we're only used to seeing coal phased out in this country. they love coal in china. i don't want to make a judgment on whether that's -- but they are huge coal plant builders there. huge. >> an important one to watch. we'll talk

in china are strong. when on friday some reports suggests otherwise. >> john ford is here now with the story. >> two conflicting story lines on apple collided today. one has apple ordering fewer iphone 5 parts which has a less than stellar start to 2013. the other is suggesting demand remains strong in apple's most crucial market for the iphone. the question here is are we at the beginning of a radical global slowdown for the iphone and ipad? half a dozen analysts believe to think so. believing that the iphone 5 parts have cut their price targets in recent days. the idea is that apple is ordering fewer parts for the months after the holidays. the problem with this theory though, demand still looks strong for the iphone 5 given the launch where apple couldn't make phones fast enough. and china did 2 million iphone 5s. europe is week. but with demands elsewhere looking healthy, some numbers at least seem to be going apple's way. the question is whether samsung and amazon are meaningfully zapping the apple products. >> all right, jan. thanks so much. >> we've got both sides of th
in china. may make beautiful products. they are a private company, family owned mostly that's made a company wide decision that their priority is on keeping jobs in the ohio river valley and placed it above profit. it would be more profitable for them likely to move their manufacturing to china or elsewhere. that's not going to be realistic. most companies won't make that the priority. are consumers ready now to pay a premium to buy made in america goods? >> look. i commend them for doing that. i have to tell you, wages in china are rising. i spoke to somebody recently building a hotel and looking at the numbers, prices really aren't much different with thing that is are being imported now and made here in the united states. prices are going up tremendously. now that a lot of attention is brought to, you know, the terrible conditions and working environments and the terrible wages in china. and look. we have to start just reinvesting ourselves and you could buy things made in china that last you not that long that are not safe. there's nothing better than american quality, the safe
. >> reporter: the problem is there are very few options in terms of appropriate action. as you know china sits on the u.n. security council and has blocked efforts in the past to sanction the north korean regime. they are its only ally but a very powerful ally. it is not clear at this time whether china is willing to go along with any u.n. security council recommendations for further punishment of north korea. they are in violation of two significant resolutions but it is unclear what real authority the international community has in terms of punishing north korea further. jenna: interesting tie some of our top stories together. china continues to be a problem in syria. that is our top story of the day. jennifer, we'll continue to watch developments there. jon: watching the crisis in syria, a nation that continues to unravel. there are reports that more than a dozen died in a car bombing, many of them women and children. the state news agency say a car packed with explosives blew up near a school in a neighborhood outside the capital of damascus. we're learning forces loyal to president bashar

economically, china being the biggest case of this, turning out millions of engineers, scientists, jumping up in productive and technology and they made some interesting calculations of course, the numbers are, you know, a little bit subject to question, but they're trying to add up the factors that create global power, whether it's the size of the economy, or the amount of research and development countries are doing, or the level of education of the population or the military. so basically we see that the u.s. that was so dominant 40 years ago, we know that our dominance has been going down relative to other countries is basically going to become one of a few superpowers, but not only the superpower. >> so other countries are catching up. how does that have to do with what we all talk about as the decline we see happening here and how real is it? >> i think what this report rightly stresses is that there are a number of things going on. one is that others are catching up. and the other is that we have got many problems that we're not attending to. >> what is for real? >> one thing that's fo
from now, the united states is going to have to step aside and let china take the top spot. christine romans is here with me to explain what this is all about. >> so this is a report that the 17 different intelligence communities in the united states put together every four years for the incoming administration. the lay of the land for what you're facing leading the world superpower, the united states. and this report finds that 350 years of an ascendant west will be reversed and you will see asia as the dominant superpower once again, going back to its position that it held in the middle ages. here's what it found. you'll have asia leading by 2030 in size, in terms of gdp, military spending, population size, technology investment. the largest economy will be china. it will have overtaken the united states, even before 2030. you will see global economic crisis. you will see the majority of the world's population out of poverty for the first time in world history. >> and a huge middle class, all of a sudden, right? >> middle classes around the world, and they will be the driving politi
